Ms. Erbe lost all credibility in her first paragraph when she compared the effectiveness of the American government in protecting basic human rights to that of the Sudanese government. A quick check of statistics shows that there have been 21 mass shootings in the from 1999 to the present in which 194 people have been killed. In contrast, over the last seven years 300,000 people have been killed and 2.7 million have been displaced in the Darfur region of Sudan. In the last week alone, as Sudanese voters decide on whether to divide their country in two, 46 people have been killed in violence related to the election. To suggest that gun violence in America approaches anything close to what goes on in Sudan is ludicrous. Ms. Erbe undermined the rest of her argument - which has several holes anyway - by starting with such an obviously ridiculous thesis.Jan 12, 2011
